Franklin County Judicial CenterFranklin County received its official charter on May 10, 1795, by act of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The newly formed county was created from portions of Mercer, Shelby, and Woodford counties and named for Benjamin Franklin, early American patriot, inventor, diplomat, and signer of the Declaration of Independence.
